Bad news for Moyles Haterz as new role to be found for him at station
Chris Moyles will reinvent himself with a new show at BBC Radio 1 when he leaves the flagship breakfast show in September, station controller Ben Cooper has promised.
The new Radio 1 boss told the Guardian that he was confident Moyles would accept a new role at Radio 1 amid speculation he would move to Radio 2 or a commercial rival.
Moyles will be replaced by Nick Grimshaw as the Radio 1 breakfast show host in September, ending eight-and-a-half years in the coveted morning slot.
"I've got an idea of a new role for him on the station. Maybe we'll surprise people again in a short time," Cooper said on Wednesday.
Asked whether he was confident Moyles would accept a new slot on the station, Cooper added: "I think so because I think he's a phenomenal broadcaster. He did eight-and-a-half years and I would rather he went out on top of his game and he will do that at the end of September. Then it's time for Chris to reinvent himself and to open up a new chapter."
Cooper said suggestions that the 38-year-old Moyles was forced out of the breakfast show because of his age were without foundation, although the station was under pressure to reduce the average age of its listeners.
At 27, Grimshaw is two years younger than Moyles when he started on the breakfast show. The average age of its listenership is 32, but Cooper wants to get that down to the target 15- to 29-year-old demographic.
The Radio 1 controller said that he had had several discussions with Moyles about the timing of his departure from the morning slot before the DJ announced it to his listeners on Wednesday morning.
Cooper told Richard Bacon's BBC Radio 5 Live show that he was prepared for a slight reduction in listenership when Moyles left, but that Grimshaw would help attract a new generation of younger listeners to the station.
Grimshaw, a regular on Channel 4's youth strand T4, was a surprise appointment in some quarters, as the Radio 1 drivetime host Greg James was widely tipped as the frontrunner for the flagship role.
Cooper said James sent him a text message after the news was announced, saying that he was not disappointed and that presenting drivetime was a dream come true.
Cooper added: "Will Greg present the breakfast show in the future? Who knows."
And the replacement...
While we’re aware of Nick (he goes to every celebrity party around… although that may have to stop with his new Radio 1 breakfast slot) – many people aren’t as familiar with the east Londoner. So here’s everything you need to know about the 28 year old...
- He is best mates with One Direction’s Harry Styles after meeting him through housemate Caroline Flack. Although Harry ended the fling, he and Nick have remained close and are often seen drinking in London together.
- Nick is also mates with Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Kelly Osbourne, Lily Allen, Sadie Frost, Mollie King, the Geldofs, Henry Holland, Alexa Chung and anyone else who is a bit trendy and lives near Shoreditch.
- His nickname is 'Grimmy' or 'Grimmers' - we've never worked out why.
- Nick grew up in Oldham near Manchester and studied at Liverpool Uni, where he picked up a first class degree, alongside hosting a local radio show – oo-er.
- He doesn’t have a girlfriend – and reckons he hasn’t had one since uni – but likes to surround himself by beautiful women.
- He started presenting on Radio 1 just after he graduated, after seeing Annie Mac at the Hawley Arms and convincing her to let him be her sidekick on Sunday evenings. Grimmy then moved to his current two-hour late night show from Monday to Thursday.
- His TV career started on E4 hosting daily shows – with George Lamb taking his screen test and championing him – before moving over to Freshly Squeezed on Channel 4.
- Nick joined T4 in 2007 and continues to present with them now, along with new Channel 4 show Style The Nation. It's not certain whether he will cut back on his TV work to accommodate his new daily show.
- His guilty pleasure is music by Miley Cyrus. We'll hold him to that one when he starts his breakfast slot.
- Describing broadcasting in the past, Nick said: “I like broadcasting and I love music. It's a fun job and it's a stupid job and that's fine with me.”
I know some people hate Chris Moyles, but he's a veteran broadcaster. (And NOBODY will ever hate him as much as the Daily Mail: Chris Moyles leaves Radio 1: Farewell to the cultural barbarian).
Grimmy is basically an IRL Nathan Barley character, let's be honest, but I think he's ok really.
"I'd rather be funny than sexy", says Emma Stone
She loves to bake cakes and doesn't exercise, is there anything more normal than this? The Amazing Spider-Man's girlfriend spoke with Glamour.
"Hi, I'm a scorpion. I love petunias. My favorite color's red, my favorite ice cream's cookie dough. My favorite movie genre's comedy", jokes Emma Stone, before sitting at Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man's round table in Cancún. After that she joined a more intimate interview, with only three journalists.
The 23 year old actress plays Gwen Stacy, the first love interest of the movie's lead. The super hero, played by Andrew Garfield, became her boyfreind during filming. Emma doesn't talk about that, but her refusal in dissecting her relationship is pleasant and funny, just like she always seems to be.
The actress spoke with Glamous about fashion, fame and Brazil.
What's the disavantage of becoming famous so quickly?
The only one is the loss of privacy, have guys outside your house. It's all new to me, it just happened.
Is is a papparazzi or a stalker?
A papparazzi! Wow, thank god it's not a stalker, I haven't even thought about it...
So we can't ask abything about your personal life.
Well, I don't talk about it, but you can ask whatever you want...
Are you in a relationship?
I'd never talk about this (laughs). But you can ask what you want (laughs). You're free! Freedom of press, man! (laughs)
What do you do when you're not shooting anything?
I like to spend time with the people I love. Because I can't really see anyone while I'm shooting in a location. And even when I'm shooting in town, the work days are long. I travel a lot as well. So I take that time to meet people when I'm not filming. I'd also like to read more and learn more, take some classes.
Did you have to train for the part?
They said I could train with Andrew's trainer, so I thought that was a good opportunity to get in shape for the first time in my life. It was awful (laughs). It's nice to be fit, but the work to get there is not fun.
But do you regularly exercise?
Not frequently. When you travel you don't really have a routine. So I spend weeks without doing anything. But it's something very important and I like to be healthy, so I need to work on that.
Did you do any sports in school?
No, but I danced. I danced for ten years. Hip Hop (laughs). It's very cool! I did a little bit of ballet and tap dancing as well, but generally just hip hop.
And you sing too?
A little, my struggle's not to lose my voice.
Do you feel pressured by Hollywood to change anything in your body?
Yeah. You see yourself too much... I don't wanna watch my movies anymore, because watching your face that big is awful... No one should go through that! (laughs) I'm trying not to see myself anymore. And now it's in 3D! Not only am I big like that, but I keep jumping out of the screen. But I don't wanna worry too much about that, because I'm not a model, I'm an actress. I wanna look like a normal person. It's important to me that I'm able to play many different parts instead of being put in a specific box. It's good to have the appereance of a human being.
You said in an interview that you thought it was weird when you saw an actress playing a teacher with tonned biceps...
Yeah, how did she found time? (laughs) Of course I know there are teachers in that world that find time to have those biceps, they get up early and work on it. But I don't know... In terms of phisical appereance, I wanna be faithful to the character in some way.
You like to bake cakes, right?
Oh yeah! During the filming of TASM, I was baking like a psychopath! (laughs) Like three different things a day.
Is it baking cakes your escape?
Yes. I don't do anything for months. When I was filming, I think it had a stabilizing effect, because it's controlled, logical, precise. It makes sense to me, looking back, that I needed something like that: I do this and it happens that. Rather than thinking about what's going to happen... I want to go back to bake because it's fun, not for psychological reasons.
Do you like to do domestic things at home?
I have an aesthetic deficiency (laughs). It's true, I'm not a visual person. I have a good memory, I remember words and feelings, but not images, of how people used to look. I know how my mom looks, but the details of her face escape me when I'm not with her (laughs). I know how she makes me feel and the sound of her voice. That's how I learn. To try and decorate my place or choose an outfit it's beyond my capabilities, I have no clue.
But you always looks good on the red carpet.
Yeah, but that's because I have a stylist, Petra Flannery, who knows how to put it all together. As time goes by I'd like to know more. For example, I've been challenging myself to paint, but what's in my head doesn't have a connection with the result on the canvas. I know how I want my house to look like but I don't know how to get there.
Do you spend a lot of time taking care of yourself, beauty wise?
No... I wash my face and use moisturizer. I have a few allergies, so I usually wear oils and Aveeno. My beauty regime has more to do with my allergies than anything else.
You're in both, the most sexy and most funny women's lists. Witch one do you prefer?
What do you think? (laughs) It's very flattering to be in the most sexy, but my goal has always been to make people laugh.
Were you like that in school?
I was home schooled through High School, but before that I enjoyed being the class clown. It was a strange combination of wanting to be the teacher's pet and the class clown. I was a nightmare, essencially!
You never had a crush on an actor?
I'll never answer this... Because I meet these people!
You don't have anyone's poster in your room?
No! I meet these people, imagine how awkward that'd be! (laughs) I can't do this anymore, I can't make lists. I can't go like: "Hmm, that guy's cute!". Because you might meet the guy, which is nice, but... (laughs)
When you started, did you have a plan B in case your career didn't work out?
I'd like to be a journalist, because I think we have similar jobs. You analise people. I love to ask questions. I'd rather I was making them now...
Why did you choose New York to live?
Becasue people have different jobs in NYC, whereas in LA it's one single industry... It's nice to be in a place where people have other interests and can talk about other things besides the Entertainment Industry. But, that being said, the weather in LA is great, I have friends in LA and a place there. I'm lucky to be able to be in both. But I think I'd go crazy if I was in LA full time.
You were in Brazil recently. Do you remember anything? What impressions did you have?
Of course I remember! Rio was incredible, we stayed at the Copacabana Palace. The food was surrealIt was a good trip.
Did you drink caipirinha?
Yes! A strawberry one!
Thank you for your time
It was a pleasure!
I love the answer she gave about hollywood changing her body
"Iron Chef" star Cat Cora was not a happy camper after drunkenly crashing into another car last month -- but she got even MORE pissed when she realized she was being videotaped ... by the other driver.
In case you didn't know, Cora was arrested for DUI in Santa Barbara last month after rear-ending another vehicle. According to police, she admitted drinking 3 beers and later blew a .19 on a breathalyzer ... more than twice the legal limit in California.
Cora later released a statement, saying “I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable. I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions.”
But she wasn't so cool-headed when the driver of other car started recording her ... moments after the crash. Cat angrily called the driver a sad "nerd" with no life.
The driver tells TMZ, he recorded Cora on his camera phone because he believed she was drunk and wanted the video as evidence.
We reached out to Cat's camp for comment on the video. They sent us the same statement she previously released.
Filming began yesterday in Northern Ireland, so we should see official casting confirmations any day now! Until then, it’s time for more casting speculation.
One source heard from a local in Bellaghy, N. Ireland, last week that Game of Thrones would be shooting there, possibly at Ballyscullion Park. As we found out yesterday, this was correct. The same local also mentioned that English actress Diana Rigg was coming to town. Rigg, star of the classic television show The Avengers, hasn’t been mentioned in connection to GoT, but the rumor is intriguing. Ballyscullion Park is frequently home to film and television shoots, so it’s possible she was connected to another project filming in the area. [This one's just about confirmed, some 4Chan thread spilled the beans earlier]
Diana Rigg aka Emma Peel from the Avengers. No, not that Avengers.
We’re still waiting on confirmation of speculated cast members Mackenzie Crook and Philip McGinley. Since Crook was photographed outside the site of the script reading with the cast, he’s almost a sure thing. We don’t know yet what role he’ll play, but Elio at Westeros.org has said that Crook will not be playing Vargo Hoat. It appears that McGinley was filming yesterday, though his role is still also unknown.
Mackenzie Crook aka the guy from Pirates of the Caribbean with the eyeball scenes
We know Nathalie Emmanuel is involved due to her tweeting of a script. We’re still waiting to find out what part the Hollyoaks actress will be filling.
Philip McGinley aka this guy. IDK who he is either
WiC commenter Carne did some digging and found that Clive Mantle will not be returning as the Greatjon Umber in season three, according to the actor’s agent.
Nathalie Emmanuel aka gawjus and probably doomed to like 30 seconds of airtime per episode before being killed off
Asim Ahmad tweeted on July 8th that he was working on Game of Thrones, and it’s been reported that he mentioned on Facebook that he’s playing Thoros of Myr. We haven’t had any on-set sightings or word from HBO to confirm the actor’s casting.
Asim Ahmad aka another reason for Lindaaa's ragetears to fall down her pure white cheeks
A blind gossip report from IMDB that is fun but unreliable: A commenter posted a thread about a “big name” being cast on GoT this season. They claim the source is their friend, an actor on the show. The IMDB postings are anonymous and don’t carry a lot of weight with their vagueness. They describe the new casting as “old school big”, and a “bit of a legend”. The poster says their actor friend reported, “You could hear a pin drop when [this person] talked,” but wouldn’t provide any other hints. They say the ‘legend’ was about 5ft 8, but it was probably a joking answer to “Can you tell me how big they are?” There may be no basis to this posting, but if the show cast a name like Diana Rigg or some other British legend, it would fit.
OMG, Diana Rigg is fucking inspired casting for Margaery's grandma! Dead ringer for Natalie Dormer back in the day. Can't wait to see her slay as the thorniest queen of all
For Britney Spears, listening to an X Factor hopeful perform a cover of one of her songs may have been a total drag – literally.
During Monday's auditions in Greensboro, N.C., Spears stormed off the set as a man, dressed partially as a woman, rocked through one of her hits, "(You Drive Me) Crazy."
Spears, 30, looked stunned throughout the performance, as fellow judge L.A. Reid patted her on the back. Judges Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell also couldn't contain their reactions, as they covered their faces with their hands.
And neither could the crowd – but they seemed to be instant fans of the audition.
While Reid and Lovato followed the pop star off the set, Cowell stayed behind. "I don't think she quite understood your tribute," he told the singer, who wore cat glasses, a bedazzled jean jacket, boots and his hair tucked in a bun.
"I had to fight real hard to get here," the tearful singer told the judges, adding that he was recently on welfare and nearly missed his X Factor call because he couldn't afford his phone bill.
"I really respect the tribute," Spears said when she returned to the judges' table. "It was really nice."

In the latest issue of Total Film Sir Anthony Hopkins tells the publication that he believes he will shares scenes with Natalie Portman (Black Swan) in the sequel to Thor.
In the first film Thor destroys the rainbow bridge thus preventing him from venturing back to Earth. Of course this issue was sort of solved in The Avengers because Odin mustered up some Dark Magic. But that came off as something they couldn't do all the time going forward, so now it seems they'll transport Jane Foster to Asgard instead. Well, according to Sir Anthony Hopkins, and you never question a Sir.
“I haven’t got a script yet but I believe Natalie and I have some scenes together this time."
Hopkins says he’s looking as much forward to “Thor 2″ as he is to “Red 2″, in which he plays a “crazy scientist”.
Yessss more Asgard! Meh! more Jane.
Sorry Mods, fixed it now.
Oh, goody! Because I know the first thing that crossed my mind was, "Here's a story that's just clamouring for continuation...and a musical."
Shocker alert: It's possible that working for Courtney Love is no picnic. The predictably unpredictable Hole frontwoman was sued today by a former assistant who claims that, during the year she worked for Love, the singer "acted with an improper and evil motive amounting to malice or despicable conduct." Evil seems like a strong word...
According to the lawsuit obtained by E! News, plaintiff Jessica Labrie was hired by Love in June 2010 as an administrative assistant and "forensic research aide" for $30 an hour—and it was down-hill from there.
Among Labrie's allegations against the "Pretty on the Inside" artist, per the complaint: Love had her working 60-hour-plus weeks without paying overtime, she asked her to hire a computer hacker, she directed her to send fake legal correspondence, she never followed up with a promise to pay for Labrie's Yale tuition, she never paid her any promised bonuses and she didn't secure her a promised job on the set of a Nirvana biopic.
The list goes on. Labrie also states that, in addition to repeatedly asking for the money she was owed, she had voiced concerns to Love about the ethical and legal implications of the questionable things the artist allegedly asked her to do. A rep for Love hasn't yet commented on the suit and its singular laundry list of accusations.
On Jun 27, 2011, the suit continues, Labrie was forced to resign with Love still owing her more than $2,000. The plaintiff says the situation caused her headaches, insomnia, anxiety and depression. She is seeking unspecified damages for alleged wrongful termination, failure to pay wages and overtime, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Lizzie and Dakota continued filming their new movie Very Good Girls yesterday. They shot a scene at a front porch. It seemed like Lizzie’s character was upset and Dakota’s character was trying to comfort her.
Demi Lovato hung out with fans last weekend at a private backstage party before her Summer tour stop in Boston. Guests enjoyed a sneak peek of Text Bands and bumped fists with Demi to trade messages.
Fans also got to ask the actress and pop superstar some of their biggest questions before hearing a special acoustic performance of some of their favorite songs, including “Give Your Heart a Break.” Look at more pics from the party below
Ned Benson (In Defiance of Gravity) wrote the two scripts and will direct both films.
The love story explores how a married couple in New York City deals with an emotional, life-altering experience, from the two different perspectives of the husband, Conor, (McAvoy), a restaurant owner, and of the wife, Eleanor, (Chastain), who goes back to college.
Myriad CEO Kirk D’Amico said, “I am thrilled that we can share the excitement of James joining the cast with our buyers in Cannes, who have been so enthusiastic about the project from the beginning. James is one of the finest actors working today and I look forward to seeing Ned’s rich, complex characters come alive.”
“'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' represents an alternate approach to content,” continued D’Amico.“New distribution models make it creatively possible for feature films to break out of the format of one 90-minute experience.”
But both films will be stand-alone movies. D’Amico added, “We have to make both films work on their own, both for the buyers but also for the audiences. Together these films will describe a fully, more complete look at these characters and their lives.”

Video: Purity Ring: "Fineshrine"
By Carrie Battan on July 11, 2012 at 06:34 a.m.
Purity Ring have shared the second video to go along with their forthcoming debut recordShrines. Here's the Young Replicant-directed clip for "Fineshrine", a dramatic high-def mix of...uh, The English Patient, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and Myst?
On July 24, the day of the record release, the band will play a special in-the-round release show at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City.
A reminder: Purity Ring will play this year's Pitchfork Music Festival, which takes place this weekend in Chicago. A limited number of single-day tickets for Friday and Sunday are still available for purchase here.
Purity Ring: Electro-Pop Duo Take Artisanal Art to Next Level
Who: Purity Ring are Megan James, 24, and Corin Roddick, 21, two natives of Canada's prairies who craft their forward-thinking electro-pop across a long distance — Roddick from his home in Montreal and James from Halifax, Nova Scotia. "I saw Megan for the first time playing piano and singing at a local show in Edmonton," recalls Roddick, formerly the drummer for Canadian post-rock goofs Gobble Gobble. "We didn't actually meet for another half year or something, but upon meeting, we talked about working together. We didn't really know how we were going to do it and didn't suspect we'd be making electronic music at all. It just sort of unraveled that way."
The Magic of the Sea: In late 2010, when Roddick first sent James early, skeletal Purity Ring tracks "Ungirthed" and "Lofticries," the first he'd ever written, she was about to embark on a sailing trip off the western coast of Mexico. By the time she got home to Edmonton for Christmas a few weeks later, she'd taken his dusky, trap-rap-inspired material and added her own lighter, captivating touch. "I remember the moment clearly," Roddick says of hearing his bandmate's vocal additions. "I had the music playing really low on the monitors because [she was] singing quietly. I think [she] was nervous to show me, but as soon as I heard the chorus to 'Ungirthed,' I was just like, 'Yeah, we're gonna be a band. Let's do this.'"
Weird Science: "Corin is a little bit of a whiz kid," says James of Purity Ring's innovative other half. "I think that's the only way to explain it." In addition to commandeering multiple iPhone apps to help the group soundcheck their live-show setup, Roddick also devised a wholly interactive extension to his keyboards and sampler: a phalanx of lights that reacts to every note he plays. "When I'm hitting them with the mallets," he explains, "they reproduce a sense node, or manipulate the music in some way, and then they light up to show visual feedback. I just kind of made it up as I went along, I guess."
Sew Necessary: Using vintage and recycled fabrics, James, a fledgling seamstress, handcrafted the backdrop for the band's performances, as well as designed a bag to carry their bass drum on tour. "I'm constantly surrounded by things that I make," she says, "or things that my friends have made or things that I love. Part of it is wanting to be in a world where everything is homemade. We're just trying to create something that we're comfortable in, something that makes others feel the same way."
Video: The Shins: "It's Only Life"
By Pitchfork on July 11, 2012 at 08:25 a.m.
As promised, here's the music video for the Shins' "It's Only Life" from Port of Morrow. The video, directed by Hiro Murai (who directed St. Vincent's "Cheerleader"), takes place in an apocalyptic suburb where monsters have captured James Mercer.

See OFF's! Public-Access Throwback Video Starring Dave Foley
Punk collective OFF!'s brief, bilious self-titled album forcefully updates classic hardcore tropes. The newest video for the album reaches back to a similar era, to painfully hilarious effect, with acting help from Kids in the Hall/Newsradio funnyman Dave Foley. Directed by Whitey McConnaughy, whose previous OFF! video made prominent use of a portable cassette player, the latest clip interweaves OFF! scorchers "Borrow and Bomb" and "I Got News for You" with watery, VHS-style, faux-public-access TV footage. Foley hosts an awkward discussion of punk on a show called Teen Talk, and it all ends with an OFF!-blasted dance-aerobics sequence. So it's good and good for you.

Warp Unveils Flying Lotus Reissues, Streams
You'll have to wait until "October, or some shit" for Flying Lotus's highly-anticipated new album Until The Quiet Comes, but his label Warp Records isn't wasting any time. Today they've re-released a bunch of Fly Lo stuff on vinyl due to popular demand. Considering his attention to detail, vinyl might be the best way to listen to Flying Lotus.
The reissues include his two albums with Warp--2008's Los Angeles and 2010's Cosmogramma--plus two EPs he's released on the label, 2007's Reset and 2010's Pattern+Grid World. You can purchase these individually or as a vinyl bundle. As an extra bonus, you can stream all of these selections in their entirety through Warp's website. [Fact]

Kellan Lutz and Sharni Vinson were spotted in Miami, coyly trying to avoid the paps that they totally didn't call.
Viacom has stopped streaming full, free episodes of "Jersey Shore," "Teen Mom," "The Colbert Report," and "The Daily Show" to frustrate a DirecTV tactic in the media giants' escalating dispute.
DirecTV subscribers lost access to Viacom channels-- which include Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1 and Nickelodeon-- late Tuesday night after the companies failed to reach a new carriage agreement.
When DirecTV told subscribers they could just watch many Viacom shows for free on Viacom networks' own sites, Viacom answered by halting free streaming for anyone-- not just DirecTV customers.
Attempts to access complete episodes of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central's site Wednesday afternoon, for example, produced a message saying full episodes were unavailable.
DirecTV says Viacom is asking for a 30% price hike. Viacom argues that it is the most-watched programmer on DirecTV, accounting for 20% of all its viewing, but is only paid for about 5%.
DirecTV's "Other Ways to Watch" page still lists paid sites were Viacom shows are available such as Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, and iTunes.
My message to Viacom...
According to the St. Paul Park Police Department, Toni Medrano, of Cottage Grove, Minn., died Saturday at a local hospital. It is believed Medrano's death is the result of a July 2 incident in which she allegedly set herself on fire while visiting her mother's St. Paul Park home.
"Through the preliminary investigation, the officers determined there was a flammable liquid that she used to set herself on fire," St. Paul Park Police Chief Michael Monahan told The Huffington Post.
While authorities say they suspect Medrano's death is a suicide, an official cause of death is pending.
"I can tell you preliminarily that she died of complications from thermal injuries -- that means fire," said Don Gorrie, a spokesman for the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's office. "We won't be signing the death certificate until all of our testing process is done ... and it could be weeks."
Last month, Grace dubbed Medrano "vodka mom", because the woman had allegedly killed her newborn after a night of heavy drinking.
"The baby is dead because of vodka Mommy," Grace said during her June 11 show on HLN. "I don't care if she was driving a car, holding a pistol or holding a fifth of vodka. [It] doesn't matter to me. The baby is dead at the hands of the mommy."
Medrano's 3-week-old son, Adrian Alexander Medrano, died while sleeping on the couch with her on Nov. 22, 2011. According to the criminal complaint, Toni Medrano told police she had consumed almost an entire fifth of vodka the night before her son died and fell asleep with him on a couch. The following morning, she woke up and found her infant son unresponsive and cold to the touch.
Medrano's husband told authorities he had awoken to his wife screaming, "the baby is dead," according to the criminal complaint. Medrano's husband called 911, but paramedics were unable to resuscitate the child. The baby was pronounced dead at Woodwinds Hospital in Woodbury.
According to the criminal complaint, a preliminary blood-alcohol test conducted by police showed Medrano's level to be .11 percent, which is three points higher than the state's legal driving limit.
An autopsy by the county medical examiner's office determined Adrian Medrano had died of "asphyxia due to being laid upon while sleeping with an adult."
In June, Medrano was charged with two counts of second-degree manslaughter. If convicted on both counts, Medrano would have faced a maximum of 10 years behind bars.
During her television show about the baby's death, Grace said the charges filed against Medrano weren't harsh enough.
"I don't see how this whole thing was an accident and I want murder charges," Grace said.
Greg Malcolm, a detective with the Cottage Grove Police Department, which investigated the infant's death, said he believed the child's death was accidental.
"I sincerely don't believe that she had any intent to cause harm to her child on this evening," Malcolm said. "By all other accounts, she's been a productive mom, a good mom. She's done a decent job of raising her children. She, unfortunately, was in the habit of sleeping with this particular child from the day it came home from the hospital."
Medrano's sister, Maria Phillips, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune her sister had watched Grace's show about the baby's death. Afterward, she was "shaking and couldn't take a breath," Phillips said.
Medrano's husband, Jason Medrano, told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the show, as well as the Internet comments that followed it, were cruel.
"The things people said were horrible," he told the newspaper. "It shows that cyberbullying happens to adults, too."
Speaking with Fox 9 News, Medrano's mother, Yvonne Hill, said her daughter fell into a depression.
"She was trying to build and get by and live with what happened," Hill said. "When she saw that, it broke her spirit in the worst way."
Chief Monahan told The Huffington Post his agency is still investigating what prompted Medrano's alleged suicide. Asked if her child's death being featured on national television may have played a role, Michael responded, "It very well could [have]."
I feel awful for her other children. I bet Nancy is actually proud of this. :\
